How do you start to homeschool your child???

My 7 year old son has ADHD and I think it is best if he is in homeschool due to his concentration at school... cant sit in the classroom more than 30 mins at a time.

  • You already have!!!
    You are your child's first, and best teacher. You have been homeschooling him since birth.
    But the very first thing you need to do is find out what the laws and requirements around homeschooling are in your state, and be sure that you meet those.

  • I couldn't handle the responsibility of setting up a curriculum so we went with connectionsacademy.com. We don't do school more than 4 hours a day and we can take time off for bad days.
